Hey y’all, the following is a daily devotion that I receive from my friend Jonathon Buxton. I just wanted to pass on the good stuff. If you’re interested, go to the website that it’s in the subject line and sign up. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. This particular one is good stuff. The Lord has really been showing me some stuff about waiting on His timing. I added a verse that I’ve been clinging to:“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient. They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:3
Waiting… Still
“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14Waiting on God to move in our lives takes trust, discipline and faith. When it feels like we’re not making any headway in our relationship with God, or perhaps we think that He’s not hearing our prayers, or maybe we just feel so disconnected from Him that our faith begins to falter… those are the times we must hang tough in Christ. It’s during those moments of uncertainty that we must remain strong in what we believe. We must remember all those periods in our lives that He brought us through and claim that His promises are true. Faith in Him isn’t meant to be based on circumstance. Through the mountains and the valleys we must believe that what He has said is True- and always will be.But the strength we need to hang on one more day in hopes for deliverance comes from Christ and not our own. For the same power that rose Jesus from the dead is the same power that lives inside us. So wait. And if nothing’s happening… keep waiting. God’s timing is perfect and so are His plans for us. We must remain pure… holy… and obedient. Worship can be found in waiting. Your day will come, and when it does, you will say that it was all worth the wait and that you’d do it all over again.“Summon your power, O God ; show us your strength, O God, as you have done before.” Psalm 68:28
